I graduated in 2006 with BSc (Hons) Psychology from the University of Glasgow and completed an MSc (with merit) in Research Methods in Psychological Science. I completed my PhD under the supervision of Prof Stephany Biello and Prof Colin Espie in 2011. My research was funded by the ESRC. My research interests lie in understanding the relationship between sleep quality, self-esteem and social media use in both adults and adolescents. My work has featured in Huffington Post and Sky News. I also have an interest in the the development and maintenance of psychophysiological insomnia, in particular, the role of attention and information processing. I teach and supervise at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels with a focus on sleep and the link between brain and behaviour.
